What are we each entitled to in our divorce settlement?

What does the law say about how to split the house, how to share pensions and other assets, and how much maintenance is payable.

What steps can we take to reach a fair agreement?

The four basic steps to reaching an agreement on divorce finances are: disclosure, getting advice, negotiating and implementing a Consent Order.

What is a Consent Order and why do we need one?

A Consent Order is a legally binding document that finalises a divorcing couple's agreement on property, pensions and other assets.


Do you need help sorting out a fair financial settlement?

Our consultant service offers expert advice and support to help you reach agreement on a fair financial settlement quickly, and for less than a quarter of the cost of using a traditional high street solicitor.

OK, I have got home from work to find an email with his responses from his sol. It''s heartbreaking.

He is basically refusing to answer any of the questions. comments like "not relevant", "no requirement", "already provided" this latter one refers to his CETV which is not up to date, more than 12 months old. What can I do?

Can I insist he answer them all?

Well if you have a crappy solicitor as I have the answer is no.

I am fed up with the way my divorce has been handled, however, I found the Judge to be very business like and trust in him with his decision. Non-compliance will reflect badly on your husband.

The only person who will suffer from this ridiculous behaviour is your ex husband dont worry about it.

Well I''m afraid it is down to the judge you end up with as to whether non-compliance is frowned upon.

My stbx hardly bothered with any paperwork or provide any evidence to back up her fictional stories and the judge couldn''t have cared less....

My experience has been the complete opposite.

QPR is quite right its for the judge at FDA to decide what should be provided or questions answered.

What a pity then as in my case and others I read on here and elsewhere that solicitors dont know this simple fact and rack up fees writing umpteen letters asking the same questions over and over without providing answers from their own client! This was not the case when I was paying but am now legally aided with different solicitors as is my ex.

As I wrote previously the Judges I have encountered so far have been workmanlike and if I understand it correctly the Judge we had last time will be the same Judge for our FDR later this week.

It is absolutely pointless writing letters to a person who refuses to play ball and all solicitors know this, a good solicitor wont waste your money in this way, a not so good one well.............................

Judges are often matter of fact, if they order disclosure whether vis questionnaire or not you can`t ignore a judge.

Anyone can ignore a solicitor, they have no legal power at all, simple as that.
